It's more difficult for citizens to enter

Am I the only one who is more than a little upset that our so-called “leadership” in Washington D.C. is expediting the acceptance of tens of thousands of illegal aliens (excuse me, “undocumented immigrants”) while at the same time requiring American citizens to pay for passports, and/or enhanced drivers licenses to re-enter our own country of birth if we spend a weekend in Canada?
At the same time we see news reports the TSA is allowing illegal aliens to fly without providing identification. I have questioned our U.S. senators as to the logic of this requirement, and why a certified birth certificate won't suffice as proof of citizenship, but they are apparently much too busy to bother with such a trivial matter. Go figure!
